Four-star center Cliff Omoruyi trimmed his list from 13 schools to eight possibilities Tuesday.
Omoruyi — a 6-foot-11 prospect from Nigeria — is now considering Kentucky, Arizona State, Auburn, Memphis, Miami, NC State, Rutgers and UConn. The five schools that were on his previous list but have now been cut are Louisville, Maryland, Pittsburgh, St. John’s and Temple.
Kentucky extended a scholarship offer to Omoruyi earlier this year. He attends the same New Jersey high school that produced Kahlil Whitney and Isaiah Briscoe. He is not expected to make a college decision until the spring.
